Josh Kempen is a truly talented South African singer-songwriter whose stripped back acoustic and electric performances have an ease of presence, while captivating audiences with his simple stories and graveled voice.
Previously nominated as “Songwriter of the Year” by SAMRO, Kempen has been touring the SA festival circuit and recently rocked out on the Oppikoppi stage.
To top it off, CPT based Thor Rixon recognised his natural talent and recently produced Kempen’s latest EP, a nostalgic 1950’s style throwback, interlaced with mid-tempo tales of love and travel, which earned him a place on Open Rooms top 5 SA acts.
Kempen brought his sound to 702's Unplugged session introducing listeners a sound they're likely to never forget.
